Kerry Rogers

L

atex, plasters, felt, cloth and zips are regularly used in Kerry Roger’s sculptural pieces as she experiments with texture and colour to mimic the blistering scars caused by allergies, eczema and other skin conditions.

Using medical illustrations as guides, her works magnify the representations of skin to a giant scale to confront the viewer with their imposing rawness. Rogers’ fascinations with the skin stems from her own personal allergies to the likes of
